1999 Nicolas Feuillatte "Palmes d'Or" Brut Champagne

SKU #1077243 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Vivid gold. Peach, orange zest and gingerbread on the pungent, smoky nose and in the mouth. Lush and expansive, offering very good depth and power and picking up exotic toffeed apple and marzipan nuances with aeration. Closes sappy and long, with resonating spice and orange notes and a touch of candied fig.  (11/ 2012)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Showing age, with hints of iodine and oyster shell, this is nonetheless vibrant and focused, offering a very fine texture and flavors of lemon peel, white raspberry, fresh ginger, biscuit and honey. Drink now through 2019.  (12/ 2012)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

 This dry, crisp wine is balanced, finely integrated, packed with grapefruit and green apple flavors. There is just a sign of maturing in its toastiness, giving some richness to the otherwise steely texture. A success.  (12/ 2010)

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced.
